Sculptra Injection Washington DC
Sculptra Injection in Washington DC
Sculptra is a unique type of injectable treatment. It is made of polylactic acid particles, the same material used for many years (and still used today) in absorbable sutures and absorbable stents. It is best thought of as a “indirect” filler and a collagen stimulator.
Unlike what I term a direct filler, the reaction to sculptra is not related directly to the amount of material injected, but to the body’s reaction to having that material around.
When the body senses the presence of polylactic acid particles, the reaction includes depositing collagen which both plumps and tightens, leading to both volume and “lifting”
